The attorney for a San Francisco woman charged with breaking into the hotel room of “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek said his client is a prostitute, not a thief, according to the Associated Press.

The San Francisco Examiner reports that attorney Mark Jacobs said his client, 56-year-old Lucinda Moyers, is a prostitute and was in a downtown San Francisco hotel to meet a john on July 26.

Ms. Moyers has pleaded not guilty to felony charges of burglary and possession of stolen property.

Mr. Trebek said he chased Ms. Moyers out of his room and tore his Achilles tendon. Mr. Jacobs said Ms. Moyers was not in Mr. Trebek’s room.
